Weak Tea

The media is working overtime to make the exchange of notes via electronic means in the spirit of middle school a “sex scandal”. It’s pathetic.

When I was a lad Democrats knew how to have real sex scandals. None of today’s wimps will ever top the Democratic governor of Louisiana, Earl K. Long, or the long-time chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, Arkansas Democratic Congressman Wilbur D. Mills. Now those were worthy of newsprint and pictures.

Democrats should be ashamed that they are allowing the Republicans to outpace them in the sex scandal area. John Edwards can’t be expected to carry the entire load.
